“Learning from across the world is not a sin. It’s a sin to defame an educational tour as a ‘holiday’. I’m in Finland. We need to learn a lot from their education system, the best in the world (sic),” he said in a series of tweets.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday refuted the allegation of the Opposition that he is “holidaying” in Finland, saying that it was not a “sin” to study the schooling system of other countries to fix the problems in Delhi’s education system. Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, said he has worked hard to improve the education system in the national capital and that he was in Finland to see what more needs to be done.
Earlier in the day, Congress activists observed ‘Bhagoda Divas’ in Delhi to protest against the alleged absence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Sisodia and other ministers from the national capital which is at present reeling under chikungunya and dengue outbreak.
AAP leader Dilip Pandey also attacked Congress, and in a series of tweets, he said “AAP bringing all onboard to fight Delhi’s real enemies Dengue & Chikungunya, while #InsensitiveCongress busy making fun of unwell DelhiCM(sic).”
“Few people have set an agenda that they will target only AAP and spare the BJP-ruled civic bodies that are responsible for preventing the outbreak of vector-borne diseases,” Pandey told reporters. Meanwhile, amidst another controversy, Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has asked Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia to return to Delhi as soon as possible to handle the ongoing health crisis in the national capital region. Sisodia is in Finland on an educational tour.
